Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
behest of the United Nations, Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami traveled to
Uganda to craft this profound and affecting documentary. Kiarostami's film
tempers its sadness at the ravaging effects of AIDS, famine, and poverty,
with a celebration of the courage and joy of his subjects. By acting as a
participant in the events he captures, Kiarostami crafts a work "of
seemingly limpid transparency and tremendous, understated compassion"
(Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune). English and Farsi with English
subtitles. 83 minutes.
